A Little About Me
Zach Redler is an award winning music theater composer whose work has been performed in concert halls, opera houses and theaters around the world. Ben Brantley of the New York Times said, Zach’s music “transcends the expected and achieves a haunting originality...the music itself becomes a character that both connects and divides the others." For his work in musical theater with lyricist/bookwriter Sara Cooper (The Memory Show, Loving Leo, Windows, Male Identity), the American Theatre Wing awarded them the 2014 Jonathan Larson Grant. Zach and librettist Mark Campbell’s opera A Song for Susan Smith had has featured workshops at the Virginia Arts Festival, Fort Worth Opera, and CU Boulder. Washington National Opera premiered his chamber opera ADAM (libretto by J Douglas Carlson) as part of their American Opera Initiative at the Kennedy Center in January 2017. Movin’ Up In The World (libretto by Jerre Dye), commissioned by Opera Memphis in 2014, has received many reprised productions by the company and others around the country. Most recently, Zach has had the privilege to work with Jerre on The Falling and The Rising, a collaboration between the US Army Band and Soldiers Chorus, Walter Reed Hospital; co-commissioned by Opera Memphis, Seattle Opera, San Diego Opera, Arizona Opera, TCU, and Seagle Music Colony. The Falling and The Rising premiered at TCU in April 2018 and has productions scheduled throughout the 2019/20 seasons. He is a member of ASCAP, Local 802 and adjunct faculty at NYU.
